The 700 is His Score From 1-10 On Being a Dick

Now, I'm no fan of Ariel Sharon, but, he and his family (and Israel) are certainly going through a tough time. That doesn't slow Pat "Smite 'Em When They're Down" Robertson at all:
Robertson: Sharon punished for dividing Israel

The Rev. Pat Robertson said Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon is being punished by God for dividing the Land of Israel. Robertson, speaking on the “700 Club” on Thursday, suggested Sharon, who is currently in an induced coma, and former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, assassinated by an Israeli extremist in 1995, were being treated with enmity by God for dividing Israel. “He was dividing God’s land,” Robertson said. “And I would say, Woe unto any prime minister of Israel who takes a similar course to appease the E.U., the United Nations or the United States of America. God says, This land belongs to me. You better leave it alone.”

He's fucking crazy. Seriously. And the only bigger asshole than Robertson is the "God" that resides in his head.

UPDATE The guy running this church is giving Pat a run for his money. Now we know "What's the Matter with Kansas." [link from the comments at The Talent Show]

Great line!

Oh Lord, Fred Phelps. His "church" is in my hometown, a fact I try to hide whenever possible.

What a douchebag. I'm looking forward to the ways in which Robertson will be eulogized when he passes on. Turnabout is fair play.

Using a NASCAR analogy, Robertson is nothing more than Fred Phelps with a restrictor plate.

hmmm. well that's strange, Pat. i was just talking to God and She said she's ashamed your mother didn't have an abortion.

I think the Christian Coalition knew what it was doing when it hired its current president, Roberta Combs. I saw her in a panel discussion at an event last fall and boy is she one timid lady. Seriously, I was astonished at how easily she was blown over, to say nothing of her lack of intelligence (but I suppose that's a given since she's probably only ever been allowed access to one single Book in her life.) In any case, I'm guessing they just sent the pendulum crashing the other way once Pat went out on his own.

And speaking of Pat, I really love my grandmother, but as she's gotten older either her internal screening device has broken down or she has it on permanent override (and set to "stun" phase). Old people tend to do this. And what is Pat Robertson? Old. He is old and clearly he has decided life is just too damned short to withhold his judgements any longer...

Pat and Fred are both peeking out of Satan's breast pocket, hollering like idiots, doing their job for the boss: making God look bad.
